Driving down Friday, staying in Salem Friday and Saturday night, golf Saturday at The Pete Dye River Course at Virginia Tech then the race on Sunday! Been looking forward to this weekend for literally a year! The forecast as of now looks very good! I can safely say it will not snow!!!

Easily my least favorite track the cup guys visit! You can bet I'll find something else to tune into for next weekend! ...Totally kidding! I would probably go to both races there if I lived within a couple hours. Never a dull race.
 

Get That 88 Up There !!

eh it's been interesting this year finding the lists. I ran on to them and I was surprised I did. Looks like Jayski is getting more stable in some areas.

eh, I disagree, STP is still an associate. Lots of changes in the wind concerning costs associated with racing going on. The next couple of years developing the new car are going to be interesting. Going to be some standardized parts used and even longer engine use. Penske has been talking loudly about those two lately.

I really wish they would remove the front splitter for Martinsville. Encourage some physical contact racing!

I don’t expect them to exist past this season. Going to be had for them to attract sponsors when their performance is sub-par. Sucks for Bubba, has been downhill since finishing 2nd in the 500 last year
Even before that he was 3rd in the Xfinity standings when Roush shut down midseason and left Bubba out to dry.

Kid’s got talent but has been givin the shortest straws.

Unfortunately I won't be making it to the spring race this year, but will be watching on TV of course. Easily one of the best tracks on the schedule, and it looks like great weather this weekend!
